List of LBV (Luminous Blue Variables)

This is a list of supernova imposters.   These are also known as "LBV"s (Luminous Blue Variables), or sometimes "LRN" (Luminous Red Novae).   These are stars like Eta Carinae which are also known to evolve into supernovae.   One recent example of this is 2009ip which evolved from an LBV to a type II supernova in 2012.   This Wikipedia article gives you a list of nearby LBVs.   UIS Henry Barber Research Observatory has a web page dedicated to this objects.
